V4 Max temp for PEEK/ Ultem
Posted: Mon Jul 18, 2016 6:31 am
Hi, my printer has a single V4 hot end and according to makergear, the max temp is 290c. I understand that the thermistor is a limitation and I have a PT100 which I plan to install. Besides the thermistor, what is limiting the max temperature? I have heard that there is some type of liner but I cannot find specifics. I have an E3Dv6 sitting around and I may switch back to that but I am curious about what the V4 can do. I print a lot of nylon and petg mechanical devices and I am interested in more industrial plastics like PEEK. Thanks.
